This dispatch is a summary of East Pacific laws and regulations on the Regional Messaging Board (RMB). It in NO way represents the site rules. Those may be found at the One Stop Rules Shop (OSRS)
Advertisement is defined as the attempt to sway any resident of The East Pacific to move any of their in-game nations to a region that is decidedly not The East Pacific. Advertisement includes:
Using the "[region][/region]" BBCode link or the
"nationstates.net/region="link to showcase any region.
Posting about the benefits of leaving The East Pacific and joining their region.
Asking for any nation of The East Pacific to send a puppet to their region.
Ban Evasion is defined as the act of using an unidentified puppet to bypass a regional or site ban, for any purpose. Since Ban Evaders already have violated enough rules to get banned, Ban Evasion is punishable on every occasion by an additional ban.
Spamming is defined as excessive posting of multiple messages on your message board within a short period of time. There are three major types of spam banned in The East Pacific.
Multiposting (commonly called doubleposting, tripleposting, etc.) is defined as posting the same message multiple times in a row on the Regional Messaging Board, or posting messages that are similar enough to each other that they convey the same message. Multiposting unnecessarily clutters the RMB, and is thus considered spam.
Chainposting (commonly called doubleposting due to the similarity between the two) is defined as posting two or more messages on the Regional Message Board without any form of filler in between. A filler is defined as a post separating two posts by the same person. Fillers must be posted by an account other than the one that posted immediately before it, and immediately after it, or else it is also considered Chainposting. Excessive posting of fillers could be considered Multiposting.
Likespamming is defined as the repeated liking of any specific player's posts on the RMB, the repeated liking and unliking of a specific post on the RMB, and the repeated liking of every single post on the RMB.
Posts of Excessive Length are defined as any message over [BLANK] lines of text posted on the RMB without usage of the spoiler BBCode to shorten the post. This category also includes ASCII textart over four lines of text posted on the RMB without the usage of the spoiler tag.
Doxxing is defined as violating personal privacy by revealing private data of any player to the public or to any other player. Examples of private data include social media accounts, IP addresses, postal addresses, E-mail addresses, telephone numbers, names, or other real-world identifying information. Doxxing yourself is discouraged but, in some cases, allowed. Pretending doxx someone, which is defined as publicly or privately revealing falsified private information, is also illegal.
False Accusations are defined as the wrongful accusation against another resident of The East Pacific. This can be an accusation of any crime in this list, or an accusation of any site offense.
Flaming is defined as any personal attack against another player, expressed via OOC (out-of-character) comments; insults, excessive swearing and anything posted with intent to offend or anger another player or a group of people. In-character remarks can be interpreted this way as well, so watch what you post if other posters are unaware you're not serious. Repeated instances of flaming directed at the same player can be considered harassment, a more serious offense. Flaming at a certain point becomes a site offense.
Flamebaiting is defined as any post that is made with the aim of angering or offending someone indirectly. Not outright flaming, but still liable to bring angry replies. Flamebaiting is a far more subtle and covert action; it is an underhanded tactic that is designed to provoke a response from another player. Another type of flamebaiting is malicious quote editing, which is defined as changing the contents of a quoted post without showing the original text, either through color changes or strike-out, with the intent to offend or anger someone, or to falsely accused them of another crime. (See False Accusations)
Impersonation is defined as any attempt to maliciously impersonate another nation or region without consent, including employing a similar name or attempting to hack nation or region passwords. If you have consent, ensure that you have evidence of this to prevent punishment for such a crime (See False Accusations). If consent is revoked, the person who originally gave consent must inform the impersonation account before reporting it.
Mod Impersonation is defined as any attempt to maliciously impersonate a Site Moderator.
Inappropriate Content is defined as any post considered intolerable by the US movie rating "PG-13" standard. Swearing may be tolerated, but any type of lewd, explicit, or sexual content is not allowed on the RMB.
Pingspam is defined as pinging one person repeatedly or pinging a large number of people, usually over ten, with no valid cause, as determined at the discretion of the Regional Officers. Pingspamming is punishable by warnings, and, in extreme or repeated cases, a ban from the region.
Punishment for these offenses generally includes a post suppression and a warning. Any resident of The East Pacific may freely issue a warning to the offender without consequence.
Punishment for Advertising may include a suppression of the offending post and a ban from The East Pacific. Advertising for an Out Of Site (OOS) product or website may be reported to Site Moderators, due to this being against Site rules.
Punishment for Spam includes a warning and a suppression of the offending post. With multiposting and chainposting, five offenses in total can result in a ban from The East Pacific. With likespamming, due to the lack of ability to suppress a post, only a warning is issued, but repeated offenses may result in a ban from The East Pacific. With Excessive Length, a warning is issued along with a request to add a spoiler tag. If the offender refuses, the post will be suppressed. Repeated offenses may result in a ban from The East Pacific. Spam offenses may also be reported to Site Moderators

When you interact with the community in a friendly manner, when you are sharing your ideas and getting involved, and having fun, you are enlivening not only yourself, but all of us. So live a little. Audentes Fortuna Iuvat.
Whether it's character roleplay or nation roleplay, whether it is on or off a map, roleplay is the blood that runs in our veins. So try it out. Valsora is the mainstream Regional Message Board (RMB) Roleplay (RP), run by Merlovich. This map has been home to most of the RPers in The East Pacific and is the most recommended by RPers. Other RMB RPs include Tierrarde, run by Plazland and more. Forum RP is, as the name suggests, done on the East Pacific Off-Site Forums. This map is run by a variety of cartographers and is home to some of the older RPers in The East Pacific. Some people even double up on Valsora and Urth, which is the name of the Forum RP map. Additionally, there are Discord RPs, which are done on specific discord servers. There is no mainstream discord RP, but there are minor ones.
When it comes down to the fundamental aspects of NationStates, on-site and off, the most important thing to remember is that this is a game. You aren't forced into anything, and the most important thing to do is to have fun. Do whatever you can to have fun because life's too short to be wasting it by not having fun. As long as you maintain proper etiquette and have fun, your NationStates experience will be memorable in the best way possible.
Firstly, allow us to introduce the STEP program.
This program is designed to get you oriented to the general world of NationStates, and help you get involved in the region. The STEP program consists of a series of STEPs with some additional explanation which will tell you how to do everything, why to do it, and sprinkle in some explanation and context to the dispatches. To progress to the next STEP, just click on the "Next:" link at the bottom, and to go forward a STEP, click on the "Previous:" link, and go back a STEP.
All STEPs will contain a summary, a more detailed explanation and some contacts to telegram in case you have any questions. It is recommended that you read all STEPs in order in the space of a few days, however, you can read these however you want, and most STEPs can be read independently of one another.
